A mother-daughter conversation on food and cooking (mostly)

Herbs, Food, etc.

Here is Dad's herb garden at the beginning of our spring--rosemary, lemon grass, thyme, cilantro, parsley, and some assorted greens in the tubs.
Tonight we had ahi burgers, quinoa salad, and Dad-grown Swiss chard with cumin and tomatoes. Everything contained one or more fresh herbs--I'm grateful.

We are experimenting with a wheat-free diet for a while. It certainly encourages us to eat quinoa and other things instead of the bread we lazily eat at most meals. Mexican cuisine is perfect in that way, because corn and beans are the common starches--except for the North where flour tortillas are more popular.

I made your southern cornbread this week and it was great.
